Hi fellas,

Not sure if this is the relevant forum, but seeing as the board we are constructing is for Necromunda I figured this would be the best place.

Blood, sweat and tears: WIP Necro Board

My brother and I started with the intention to make a 4 x 4 modular board. We have used C 'n' C Workshop modular battle grounds series as the basis for our board. Its taken us over ten hours of work [on and off] to finish the various sections of board, which can be seen in the photos below.

The next stage is to purchase a 4 x 4 MDF base board which will have a lip of dowel on the outside of the board to stop the modular sections moving too much. Once thats done the whole thing will be painted.

We are also in the process of making some plasticard constructions similar to those available in the original Necromunda Box to add a 3-D element to our terrain!

So without further ado, our WIP board:

1 -- The whole 4 x 4 Board

2 -- A close up of the Bridge

3 -- Ganger's sheltering behind hard cover
http://img521.imageshack.us/img521/9651/71664220qr5.jpg

So, thats our board. C & C Welcome..... Lets see yours!

P.S.

How much terrain do people usually have on their boards? We were going to opt for more is better. Do people agree with that? It's been a while since we last played! :D

Definatley more terrain :) Great board by the way, just needs detris and lots of it!! Dumpsters, ruined vehicles, fences (solid, and wire ones).

IMO (for what it's worth), check out and FPS where you're in a city fight and take examples from that. That's how I see the Underhive, just with more steel and corrosion.

Wow, thats simply amazing! that WIP board looks better than most of GWs attempts! Terrain wise, I guess you are going for a settlement rather than a collapsing area, so I would just have more detriatus, a few wreaked vehicles that kind of thing.

Chimpeh

Thanks guys. The board itself looks really good. I don't know what you guys think of the pictures but there is a lot of detail on the boards. I am uncertain whether the detail can be seen clearly enough. We are going to be adding some sand and gravel to the blast marks that are littered around on a few of the tiles and also placing some debris sporadically on some of the blank tiles to give the board more character and to aid its appeal. EDIT: Forgot to say that we are also going to use some decorators cork or something similar to fill in some gaps that are present on the hab-units (as we have dubbed them).

As for buildings we are going to order some plasticard from hobby suppliers and use that to make some terrain rather like the original Necromunda terrain packs, but with more detail and more use for the buildings. That should help with the terrain considerably.

The next big task is getting the thing painted, It took a long time to put the model together. However, I'm sure the board will be worthwhile in the end.

Oh, on another point, I was considering on making some more tiles to represent canals. Alternatively, the based board could be painted as an entire underhive reservoir and tiles then left out to give the impression of canals. I'm sure it would give more character to the gameplay.

Chimperh: That board's really nice start, but you definetely need more terrain on it. Definetely.

Here's mine/our WIP, slightly smaller than 44 (had an extra piece of wood):
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v673/helldudes/board1.jpg

Needs a lot more aerial terrain and small bits and pieces. Plus it's kinda too bright. And the photo's crappy. Will keep you guys posted.

Catferret
10-07-2007, 13:53
Eazy-O, that's looking pretty nice so far.

I have one suggestion, you need more multilevel stuff. Even some scaffolding on the buildings would help. Lots of ladders and walkways required.

Jo Bennett
10-07-2007, 16:47
large amounts of multi-level isn't an essential, some very interesting games can be had in the "wild west" type of underhive settlement. Not every battle takes place in a Bond villain industrial complex. The important thing is to have some heights, and to make sure high places have vulnerabilities (limited fire arcs, lack of cover etc.) otherwise they can dominate.

Chimpeh
10-07-2007, 18:58
Eazy-O that is looking really nice mate. Love the watchtowers that you have on the board, and the factory complex.

We bought some ruined buildings last night from a website, not too sure if I am allowed to post where they are from, but they will work really well. Managed to get a Factory complex, and two ruined administration buildings, one which is 3 storey, the other which is two. Planning on connecting them with a series of walkways and painting them up at the same time as the board.

Hopefully have some more pics of the WIP by the weekend for you guys to see, and hopefully have the project done by end of July. Hopefully.

Hey I'm the other one working with Chimpeh on making this board. Nice touches Eazy-O, really like the rust effect on some of the designs and corrugated metal. How did you do the rust?

Eazy-O

Oi, Catferret, neat new avatar. :)

Anyway...

Catferret: I do realise that we need more multi-level stuff, i did mention the need for "aerial" terrain. In my "defense", i do have the original Necromunda card terrain + the set from Outlanders expansion. There's some terrain in the works, but it's kinda on a sidetrack since we're prepairing to go to an international tournament (40k).

Jo Bennett: Yeah, a game can be played fine without a lot of tall structures, in fact we've played quite a few of them. However, for some campaign diversity it's better to have some tall terrain shelved so you can configure the table to suit the territory you're fighting over, etc. And you know we all love it when enemy gangers fall from walkways like apples from trees. ;)

Chimpeh: Post the link, i'd like to see it. :)

KASOx: The rust... Several ways. The fueltank was first sprayed a dirty white as basecoat and then brown around it's base. After that i took a big paintbrush, dipped it into a mix of orange and brown and dabbed around the tank bottom a bit. Most other stuff just recieved liberal drybrushing of silver, followed by the orange-brown mixture. Nothing special, even a chimp(eh? :P) could do it. Oh ya, just remembered, here's another tutorial on rust: http://www.terragenesis.co.uk/infopages/page371.html

I like the atmoshphere of this shot (if my pics are too big, let me know, i'll resize 'em):

There is the link for where we saw the scenery but we got the actual stuff from a UK supplier. It was around 120 for the board. They do some nice stuff anyway, shame that you have to construct it which took a while. Mainly it was the filling and taking the small 'nibs' off of the MDF pieces where they were stuck to the sprue.

Cheers for the rust notes as well Eazy-O, they will come into a lot of use in the next few weeks.

Ouch. I mean, the terrain's nice, but for me, that's a bit steep - for 4 buildings and some roads.

I scavenged most of my materials. I'd write a list, but it's kinda long. Mostly different containers (cans and boxes) and scrap cardboard. Only thing i bought were some cheap pipes and some extra paint.

KASOx

Melchiah - Awesome link there. That is really inspirational.

Eazy-O - I understand what you mean about the price, it kinda threw us at first, but hopefully we will be really pleased with the outcome. also we have have never had a board that was war game based. We were the classic people that played on the floor =( Hopefully, this may help us from playing games in such a manner.

Not so much a 'board' but it certainly was an interesting setup we had for this game:

http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y14/AnkhAngel/Photos/IMG_0533small.jpg

The game's objective was a button on the top level.

It was a 'friendly', so wounds were only caused by falling damage... but there's a lot of edges to far from, and a long way down.

Was good fun though, made more fun due to me winning the game :D

hope this pic works. we go for the crowded table which allows for gratuitous amounts of dropping minatures into the middle of the board where no one can reach them. we also like it lots when pieces snap off during play, or whole gangs topple off of bridges....

Out of curiosity, has anyone ever thought of doing a more vertical board? I was reading through an article they'd put out about 'Paradise City' earlier...and it made me realise just how cool a board modelled on, say, Hong Kong or New York would be.

So, anyone know if this has been attempted?

Eazy-O
14-09-2007, 18:23
The main problem with boards like that would be placing minis inside buildings. If you couldn't do that, it would make little sense to bother with big buildings in the first place, unless they were ruined in places to allow for mini placing... I speak from experience, as i've nicked some (no longer needed) 1/50 apartment blocks from my Uni and since we couldn't access the interior, it wasn't all that great.

NeonWraith
15-09-2007, 10:17
Eazy-O - Good point, I'd not really considered that..

Though I'm now really tempted to do a board where all the terrain is rooftops connected by a variety of bridges...maybe with some balconies a bit lower down, etc.

...ye gods, I really need to stop watching Hong Kong films.

White Dwarf featured an extremely vertical board by a guy that said corkin' a lot. Matthew something. Must've been about issue 210. To the archive!

It was WD 207, and Matthew Currier. Close enough.

The 'board' basically consisted of big sheets of polysterene standing upright to form a four feet tall X-shape, with fifteen levels of polysterene strips stuck to the sides. The idea was that the space between the walls is actually solid, just cut away for the purpose of gaming.

Full: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v673/helldudes/necrotable01.jpg

Nothing new, really, we just broke out my starter set and expansion. Loads of fun to play on. The setup is for a Hit&Run Shoot Up, i started with one ganger on the table and he had 4. My reinforcements were, of course, crap, with one ganger per turn. I did manage to pull through, just barely, cutting him down in the last inches. ;)

I remember when that article about the "corkin' tower" (as we called it) came out and it was interesting but at the same time rather limiting.

Don't get me wrong, I think its an incredibly impressive piece of "all in one" terrain but at the same time I think it would get boring fast because you can't change the terrain around for each game.

Hey guys, well me and Chimpeh were the first ones to start this thread ages ago if I remember rightly. Anyway, this Easter after 15 hours of painting I finally managed to getting the boards into a playable state.

Personally, I am very pleased with how they have come out, the modular design is a God send for giving us the ability to have different scenarios and battles. We're going to be adding some fine detail to the design over the next few days including scaled down posters onto the buildings to give them a more urban appearance.

Also, we are going to create a board for them to sit upon so that they don't slide when we are having a battle.

Here's how they look now:

We have also bought some more scenery to be placed on the board from Armorcast. I must admit that I am rather lazy when it does come to making scenery and also get very short tempered when something just isn't going as planned. Anyway here's a link to the new scenery which will also be on the board.

http://armorcast.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=50&products_id=312

Let me know what you think.

Oh, and if we are pleased with the Armorcast stuff we may purchase some more of their products as from what we can tell there is some very nice industrial pieces for sale

C&C welcome!

Missing the 'underhive' feeling as it has quite a large space but low profile. Unlike how I imagine the underhive to be. So missing the feeling, but nice painting nonetheless.
And thank you for keeping us updated.

KASOx
25-03-2008, 01:11
Yeah, we feel exactly the same about the board at the moment, and we knew that in its current state that it would be lacking that certain Hive feel. We bought it particularly for the modular board, and a good starting basis for the rest of the scenery to be placed upon. Hopefully, it will be a good setting for the Hive. Fingers crossed.

Furthermore, we also play 40k so the sparse areas will be ideal for 40k, not so for Necromunda.

We're hopefully gonna counteract that with the armorcast platforms! Also, I noticed on Eastern Fringe that Litko produce some nice structures very similar to the old Necromunda card structures, so we may splash out on them too. These will hopefully add to the 3D element along with the Armorcast catwalks to give it that much needed Hive appearance and feel.

Oh, and thanks Deltrax for the comment on the painting... made the 15 hours feel more worthwhile =P

Eazy-O
25-03-2008, 01:32
Nice work KASOx. It may not be Underhive as most of us know it, but who are we to say. It's big and open to interpretation. 'sides, maybe you wanna place you campaign "elsewhere", fluffwise.

The techwalks oughtta work nicely, if, again, a bit pricey. You could achieve a similar result for a fraction of a price by building them yourself. Yes, i normaly ramble about prices, but fact is, you'll need a lot more terrain, preferably in levels.

Try with simple stuff at first, take come corrugated card, some regular card, maybe some mesh and some sprue bits and try making some fencing (say, ~6" long, 2" high) to provide some cover for the guys on ground level.

Since i'm here, most of you have prolly seen it on TerraGenesis or EasternFringe, but still, my latest piece:

Haha I am loving the Pizza shop. Looks fantastic! Nice use of the plastic Goliath model too, I never thought that they would come in handy. He seems to remind me of the display Butcher's that are stood outside of a butcher shop in town centres. They too almost stand in that pose.

Will try to get more pictures up of the board at some point with a bit more scenery. Hopefully it won't take 8 months this time =P

And, just for you Eazy-O when I get more time I'll try to make my own scenery. I promise.

Nice painting Ox. You should have probably specified in your post that the boards shown in the pictures are just literally the playing surface. Other scenery is to be added to give a more 'hivesque' feel.

To date we've ordered some of those armorcast walkways and some ruined buildings from Amera. The intention is to add as much scenery as possible, to really give that complex, claustrophobic hive feel.

KASOx
15-04-2008, 11:41
The Armorcast stuff has arrived recently and is looking really nice. Will try to get pics up of it soon when it's made up. It shouldn't take too long, we also have some Litko stuff on the way.

And for you Eazy-O, I bought some accessories and plasticard to make some of my own terrain... Well, attempt to

Evilhomer
15-04-2008, 11:48
Nice going, are you going to keep the other bits and pieces you've ordered seperate, or are you going to attach them to the modular boards? I assume its going to be the former...

Chimpeh
15-04-2008, 13:23
@ Evilhomer -- Aye, we'll keep them separate that way the whole board & scenery will remain modular.

The plan is to purchase a separate sheet of thin MDF slightly over 4ft square, place a 'lip' of dowel around the outside and that'll form a 'box' for the modular boards to be placed into (and hopefully stop them moving around). The Litko and Armorcast platforms, walkways and buildings will then be placed on the boards.

As Ox said the armorcast stuff has arrived and only the platforms need their supports gluing. They'll be spray painted black first and then metallic colours, perhaps with a little drybushing to dirty them up. The Litko stuff requires a little more assembly but it shouldn't take too long as all the parts come pre-fabricated and only need gluing. These'll be sprayed too.

OK, here's a few pictures of the scenery I made for our club, using plasticard, card, necro bulkheads and other bits and pieces.
There's a load more since I took these pictures, but you get the idea from this.
http://i237.photobucket.com/albums/ff146/belong999/Necromunda/04-3rdTable.jpg
The piece in the middle under the long bridge is a "sump" made using water effect and resin. I bought this off an eBay trader and it's brilliant Necro scenery!
You can't really see the effect from here though.

Another game from a different style of set-up

Damn, that is a lot of terrain. Nice to see bulkheads being used again, after cardboard wears out. :)

Thought about adding some buildings in a different style maybe? And some other features like industrial waste pools and such? It's easy and adds some variety.

KASOx
16-05-2008, 14:21
Okay, finally got around to adding some more stuff to the board. The Armorcast stuff arrived, and has been built. The base board has also been built.

Things to do:
- Litko buildings
- Almera factory, and ruins

Plasticard stuff is on the way, I think UPS lost it the first time around. That'll be used to make some more ground terrain, and shacks, and to "sex" up the Almera buildings.

Anyway, enough chatter - here is what it currently looks like:

I love this thread; everytime someone has posted a picture of their gaming board I have seen things that I have never considered building or adding to Ox's and my table.

Ancient -- I'm envious. Those buildings are fantastic. I'm sorely tempted to pick up a few box sets of the CoD stuff myself. It seems like the sprues can be used to generate all manner of buildings & ruins. Truely, great work fella.

I'm curious, for those who have replaced the card buildings in the Necromunda box with plasticard, what thickness did you use? Did you have any trouble getting the plasticard to mate with the Necro bulkheads? Any tips? Thanks!

HarkonGreywolf
24-05-2008, 08:30
Hi there,
OK to answer, I used 1mm thick black plasticard which fits perfectly and I managed to get a load of sheets for a reasonable price off an Internet link to a hobby shop.
Unfortunately I cannot find my link as I think it got lost in my "great PC wipe-out" last year!
I'll have another look later if I can.
The shop was in England but I don't know where you are based so it may be irrelevant.

1mm plasticard sheets seem to have been made for the bulkheads as they are a very tight but fairly secure fit, even if you don't glue them in! However, be prepared for them to come apart with rough handling at a club (No respect these youngsters!!!) if you don't
glue them.

Hope this helps.

3mm plasticard is perfect; however, what you'll need to do beforehand is clip out the three small 'nubs' used to grip the card on the bulkheads themselves. If you have a look at the 'slots' on the bulkheads, you'll see what I mean - clip them out, you have a clean, level 3mm gap!

HarkonGreywolf
24-05-2008, 11:36
The bonus with 1mm plasticard is that it is easy to cut, I use large scissors which makes it very user friendly.
The bonus with 3mm plasticard is it's strength, which is also a minus as it makes it harder to cut and shape. (And obviously it's slightly more expensive as well!)

Pays yer money and takes yer choice! ;)

True, dat. I personally prefer 3mm as I like to build stuff on to the walkways themselves and you can make them slightly longer than a 1mm depth walkway, which isn't that self-supporting.

It is more expensive, though, and it's a bit of an **** having to clip out all the nubs from the bulkheads (oh, and then they can't be used with card walkways as they won't grip them).

HarkonGreywolf
24-05-2008, 12:44
I have to say that I prefer the 1mm's.
To make them sturdier all I do is glue strips of sprue waste to the underneath all along and it strengthens them enough to take a number of metal minis with no problem, and that's as cheap as chips! LOL

The 3mm would make it easier to glue sidewalls on, although I'd still just use 1mm with sprue waste, glue it underneath at the edge of the walkway then glue the side panels onto that, giving both strength and cover in one go! :D

FTW= For the win

It's something Magic players and other gamers sometimes say when playing a trump card. "Profane Command for 10 FTW!"

Anyhow, thanks for the advice fellas! The debate seemed to bring out the pros and cons of 1mm vs 3mm. I'm leaning towards 3mm, as I don't want to start attaching waste sprues to the bottom of my walkways. I don't mind clipping the tabes off, as I'm done with the cardboard scenery. I've been on an absolute scenery bender lately, ordering bits and bobs from all over the internet. I'm planning on posting what I create on Eastern Fringe when I'm done, but fair warning, most of it is stolen from Necromundicon!

Fair play to you.
I like 1mm plasticard because I can use it for all my other hobby projects, so it's not just because it fits unaltered into the Bulkheads! :D
I'm sure I could use some 3mm for the walkways though, just to save the extra work, of course!

So how would this be?

.03 is 3mm right?

nope that's the difference between inch and mm
2,54 cm = 25,4 mm = 1 inch
so that means:
0.03 inch = 0.762 mm

And that one won't fit as snugly as the cardboard walkways
Just a headsup...

I wasn't sure if the .03 was in inches or mms! What thickness of plasticard in inches would I need for it to be about equal to .03 mms? The US really ought to get on to the metric system, btw.

3mm is about 7/64th inch (UK inches don't forget! ;) )

If you see 4" this is a short for 4 inch, same applires to 1'4" which is 1 foot and 4 inch or 16 inch as 1 foot is 12 inches. Confusing you?
If you're 2 meters, you're between 6'6" and 6'5" in the imperial system. So 0.03" means inches. Confusing.. and I hope the imperial system will die soon...
